February 1st. The first day of spring
Shrubs are already beginning to bud.
What a pleasure it is to hear the song bird sing
As you slowly ramble through your favourite wood
The stretch there is in the evenings
Gives one a spring in every step.
Soon the daffodil will bud along with all the winter seedlings
Folks are busying themselves as grounds they lovingly prep
Three months of watching nature do its thing
It really is a wondrous time, this season known as spring.
